For a while I've been thinking what was missing from the Just Flight Duchess. It somehow looked flat to me. As if I was flying in P3D. And suddenly I knew it. It lacks one (or more) graphic feature(s) that default planes do have: real time lighting. In default AFS2 planes you can see highlights on edges move in real time when you move your head. This makes things look pretty real. You don't see any of that in the JF Duchess. It has all 'lighting effects' (apart from shadows) baked in the textures. And why? Because it is a FSX/P3D port. In the Duchess things are just as dead as in P3D. It's based on and uses old tech. I do hope the upcoming Arrow doesn't have this problem otherwise I certainly won't buy it. It's such a shame to have old tech in a new sim...!
Anyone else noticed this?
BTW I uninstalled the plane, also because I can't get used to the terrible sound. It just doesn't feel right to me and I can't enjoy it.
